      Katie Rife AV Club It's too bad that the plot devolves into predictable sci-fi fare fairly early on, seemingly sealing its fate as a direct-to-VOD release. Oct 27, 2017 Full Review Anton Bitel Sight & Sound merging the tradition of Countess Elizabeth Bthory with a more modern quasi-vampiric quest for eternal youth, and tragically tracing the double standards in our differing attitudes to the ageing of men and women. Aug 15, 2017 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh The convincing effects will only whet your appetite and leave you hungry for something more substantial, as you're left to wonder which cast members knew the campiness of the concept. Rated: 2/5 Feb 5, 2021 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed Replace has its Cronenbergian body-horror influences at the forefront while also creating its own world where the viewer can forget about where the influences came from and just dive right in ... Rated: 4/5 Apr 17, 2020 Full Review Joey Keogh Wicked Horror [Replace is] overlong at an hour and forty minutes, with a saggy middle that fails to move the plot along whatsoever, and the denouement is nonsensical, not to mention unsatisfying given how long it's taken to get there. Rated: 5/10 Oct 1, 2019 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens A fascinating, thought-provoking blend of science and sci-fi, [Norbert Keil] and cinematographer [Tim Peter] Kuhn play on the concept of beauty and create the most exquisite visuals serving as a dichotomous metaphor to the story at hand.

      Victor C Um filme chato, roteiro vazio e repleto de atuações medíocres! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Poor watch, wouldn't do it again, and can't recommend. While the story seems well written, the premise is intriguing, and there are some great twists, most of the execution is poorly delivered. It almost seems like it's by design as the mood is complicated, subtle, and soft throughout. I literally doubled my volume at one point and didn't notice a difference in the speech levels, so most of the dialogue is delivered so softly its hard to tell what they're are saying. Or it happening in a nightclub with music drowning it out. The disease is actually very interesting, making a solid premise. I'd love to see another attempt at this with an actual 2017 budget and some bigger actors. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member i really enjoyed the concept -- kind of gave me "Lifechanger" vibes, although the premise is a little different. not a bad watch! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The story is an emotional confrontation of body image, self identity conflict and cultural expectations wrapped in a slow-burn psychological thriller. It is completely realized and development meticulously. The emotion almost feels aching and takes center stage- almost too much. It seems to overwhelm any suspense or thriller edge, that at first glance seems to be a potent element of "Replace". The characters are compelling and the cast show some real talent. Throughout the film the level of quality as far as character development and story structure, maintains a true indie quality that shows the director and writers maturity. My only complaint is the pace moves too slowly and the melancholy overpowers the excitement of events. That being said, "Replace" has some pretty cool body horror moments. A few that show a small influence of graphic visceral gore reminiscent of Italian horror. The special effects are mild but quality moments. Moments that should have been helped along by more outward, sensationalized suspense. Beyond what the great music score and soundtrack is telling us to feel in those scenes. Overall "Replace is a strong indie scifi drama with some thriller edge. It offers a strong dreamlike level of surrealism that accentuates the subject matter and emotional conflict of the main characters. I found the pro-lgbtq aspect mindful and positive as far as the relationship is concerned. I just think the horror elements could have been more present considering the acts committed in"Replace". Plus Barbara Crampton should have been utilized better. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
